Christopher Lloyd reprises his signature role as Doctor Emmet Brown from Back to the Future trilogy in the latest LEGO Dimensions television spot. We wrote about LEGO Dimensions back in April; it’s LEGO’s attempt to take on Disney Infinity, Nintendo Amiibo and Skylanders. The new video game will use special Lego mini figures to create franchise-busting scenarios, and properties included are Batman, The Lego Movie, Lord of the Rings, DC Comics, Ninjago, The Wizard of Oz, and yes, Back to the Future.
The Doc Brown Lego Dimensions trailer revolves around the premise of Doc receiving a mysterious package that has a connection to another dimension. Great Scott indeed, some very heavy stuff. Watch the Doc Brown LEGO Dimensions trailer embedded after the jump.

Friday May 22 is one of those great days to be a pop culture art collector. In Los Angeles, Gallery 1988 has Joshua Budich’s Fictional Food as well as Hero Complex’s Craig Drake Solo Show II. Then in Austin, the Mondo Gallery is opening Pulp Menagerie, a solo exhibit by one of our favorite artists, Tom Whalen. We’ve already run a few images from the ultra-varied show but we can now reveal what’s sure to be one of the show’s most popular posters. Whalen did a slick, super cool poster for Back to the Future. Check out the full reveal below. Read More »
In a movie that involves time travel and a climax that involves a car harnessing the power of lightning at the exact second that it hits, we don’t usually look too hard at the scientific accuracy. Well when it comes to Back to the Future, BullittRide did the math and it turns out that Marty McFly wouldn’t have even been able to go back in time in the first place because the Twin Pines Mall would not have enough room to allow the Delorean time machine to get up to the necessary 88 miles per hour.

This weekend brings the sequel Pitch Perfect 2 to theaters, featuring a wonderful showcase of music created by Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Brittany Snow, Hailee Steinfeld and more. Their group The Barden Bellas trots around the globe in an effort to win the world championships of a cappella. Their slick mash-ups and catchy harmonies have made them a sensation on the big screen, and Kendrick even turned into a radio hitmaker with her cute song “Cups.”
But The Barden Bellas aren’t the only musical groups on film that know how to jam. There are plenty of other fictional bands from cinema that give us a toner (a musical boner). Below, I’ve rounded up my picks for the Top 15 Best Bands in Movies. Did your favorite big screen musical group make the cut? Find out after the jump! Read More »
Update From Editor Peter Sciretta: LEGO has revealed images for their LEGO Dimensions expansion packs. Check out a gallery of images, after the jump now. Germain Lussier’s original story from April 9th 2015 follows:
The video game market is some competitive, everyone is always looking for something different. Disney found that when they released Disney Infinity, a game that changed as you bought miniature collectible figures that integrated with the game. Nintendo did something similar with their Amiibo figured and now Lego is getting into the mix. They just announced a new game called Lego Dimensions, which will use special Lego mini figures to create franchise busting scenarios. Among the properties that will be included are Back to the Future, Batman, The Lego Movie, Lord of the Rings, DC Comics, Ninjago, and The Wizard of Oz. Watch a trailer and read more below.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
We used to post an April Fools Day story each year on /Film, but I became annoyed by all the uncreative unfunny fake stories which infest this day. So we haven’t really participated in April Fools Day in a few years, and thats not changing this year — all the news you see on our front page is real news we believe to be true (hey, there’s always the chance that we’ll get fooled). So I’m not even going to pretend this is real for even a sentence or two (I know I’d almost have a mini heart attack), but I think its worth checking out.
I wanted to highlight this video from IGN, which claims to be a teaser trailer for a new Back to the Future reboot titled Fast to the Future starring Vin Diesel. I love this fake trailer as an April Fools Day release because you might buy it for a few seconds before it becomes so obviously ridiculous, It took some work to create this edit complete with computer generated effects… and its just fun. Watch the Back to the Future reboot trailer embedded after the jump.

Does Back to the Future predict 9/11? Was the 1985 film a warning about our future? Of course not. But thats the fun of this well-edited documentary short.
Last night I was at Cinefamily’s monthly YouTube Party, an event where a theater full of people gather together to take a collective trip down the rabbit hole of YouTube’s funny and weird videos with the help of the hosts and live suggestions from the audience. It’s a lot of fun, and they also have a buffet of junk food and cheap beer which makes the $5 ticket price oh so attractive.
One of the videos played at the March edition of the event was a video titled “BACK TO THE FUTURE 9-11 prediction !!! [Illuminati Conspiracy]”. Its not a new video but since the audience at the event seemed to love it so much, I thought it was worth sharing here. Watch the Back to the Future 9/11 prediction video embedded after the jump.

I guess a lot of people want to see an in-depth documentary on Back to the Future. Not once, but twice, the film called Back in Time has used Kickstarter to raise funds to make a feature-length documentary about the classic time travel trilogy. Both times, the film’s goals were quickly and easily funded. This latest round, which just started last week, happened in a mere few days.
To celebrate, the filmmakers behind this documentary (director Jason Aron, executive producer Louis Krubich and producer Lee Leshen) did two things. They added some really cool new stretch goals and reward levels to their campaign, then spoke exclusively to /Film us about their best memories, so far, in making Back in Time.
Below, read the most memorable moments making the Back to the Future documentary, Back in Time, and read about the stretch goals and rewards on Kickstarter. Read More »
Back in October of last year, the filmmakers of an upcoming Back to the Future documentary called Back in Time asked for the help of /Film readers. They had just landed a big interview with one of the film’s two co-stars, Christopher Lloyd and wanted a few questions. Things have changed significantly since then. For the better.
Since then, director Jason Aron not only talked to Lloyd, but has spoken to Robert Zemeckis, Michael J. Fox, Lea Thompson, Bob Gale, Alan Silvestri, superfans including Community creator Dan Harmon, The Goldbergs creator Adam Goldberg and more. The list goes on and on.
In short, Back in Time has become a much bigger movie which means, of course, more funding. The documentary is now back on Kickstarter and with it comes a brand new trailer featuring some of those interviews as well as footage of the real life Hoverboard, the Secret Cinema event and almost anything else Back to the Future you can think of. The campaign also brings news the documentary will be released in October 2015, the same time Marty arrived in 2015 in the film.
